From its early beginnings in the mid-2000s, the Korean wave in the Philippines has now taken a life of its own. It is undeniable that Filipinos are some of the most fervent fans of the Korean culture or K-Culture. It started from the rise of Korean dramas or K-dramas followed by K-Pop groups. This shared love and appreciation has led to the formation of different communities of K-Culture fans in the country just like Globe Kmmunity PH.
What was once just a Facebook community group for Globe’s K-Pop concert goers, Kmmunity PH has evolved into a platform where fans of K-Culture can mingle with each other and share their love for all things Korean. The Facebook group serves as the main hub of Kmmunity where insightful conversations about K-Culture happen and exclusive members-only perks are shared.
To give K-Fans more things to love and enjoy, Globe Kmmunity PH will expand its suite of content and experiences with new and exciting channels and partners.
“Globe Kmmunity PH is excited to have more K-Fans be part of our growing community, where they can enjoy exclusive perks and gain new friends. Likewise, they will also be able to access
more quality content from their favorite K-Idols with our amazing new content partners such as VLive, Viki and DIVE Studios.” said Globe VP for Get Entertained Tribe Jil Bausa-Go,.
